VRE Manassas Line running again

Mark Berman

Outage affected five states

VRE makes Metro option available for p.m. commute

8:35 A.M. UPDATE:
The signals just came back up, according to the VRE. Train 332 is going to run about 45 minutes behind schedule (it is scheduled to leave Broad Run at 7:50 a.m.).

8:20 A.M. UPDATE:
The latest update from VRE: Signals are not back up, so trains are still not operating on the Manassas Line.

8:05 A.M. UPDATE:
In addition to Metro Option, PRTC is accepting VRE tickets from Manassas and Linton Hall (today and today only), VRE reports.

7:45 A.M. UPDATE:
Backlick Road passengers can take Fairfax Connector bus 402 (it has a stop in front of the Springfield Square apartment complex, across the street from Burger King) to the Franconia-Springfield Metro station, according to VRE.

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 328 has been canceled, reports the VRE. And they say there's no update on the signal system failure nor a timetable for it.

The Metro Option is available for VRE riders, so use your VRE ticket to access and exit the Metro.

No Manassas Line trains can operate due to a Norfolk Southern signal failure, according to the Virginia Railway Express. Train 326, which departed Broad Run at 6:15 a.m., went back to Backlick Road, but they do not recommend boarding it.
